3 beautiful ceiling designs to inspire
It's official—eye-catching ceilings are trending now. But what makes for a statement-making ceiling? For Prudence Bailey, designer and founder of Prudence Home and Design, the trend is more than a flash-in-the pan; it's a vital element of her approach to design.
"I absolutely love ceilings!" says Prudence. "Painting or wallpapering a ceiling can really create such a 'wow factor' in a room. A good ceiling moment is when you can't imagine the room without the ceiling paint or wallpaper that's there."
Prudence's process for ceiling design is something of an art-meets-science scenario. "Most times, the ceiling begs me to do something with it because it's perfectly isolated with the crown molding. However, I don't just do something to a ceiling just to do it. It has to help tell the story of the room and what we are trying to say about the room and who uses it."
She's not opposed to leaving a ceiling white...but keeps her eyes open for other rooms in the house where a statement might work. "Sometimes, it makes sense to paint the ceiling white and let the rest of the room shine. However, I always find a room in a client project that has a ceiling moment, maybe even more than one!"
